Dr. Kayce Mobley, Associate Professor of Political Science in the Department of History, Philosophy, and Social Sciences at Pittsburg State University, will present "Thucydides in Dublin, 1916: Two Tales of Proportionality and International Relations".Thucydides’ analysis of events in The History of the Peloponnesian War is “an everlasting possession,” and many international relations theorists deem him a forefather of the field. How can his analysis apply to a modern state? This paper studies the concept of proportionality by comparing Thucydides’ account of the uprising in Mytilene, 428-427 BCE with Ireland’s Easter Rising in 1916 CE.
This event is free and open to the public.
